Reed Bear Hug squeeze tool system

Reed Mfg.’s Bear Hug polyethylene squeeze tool system with hydraulic cylinders provides 83,400 pounds of squeeze force. For squeeze control, choose from an air-over hydraulic pump PESAPA or manual hand pump PESMPA to work with the PES8BT base tool. The system features a double bar configuration for a confident squeeze. In addition to more secure flow stoppage, a double-point squeeze lessens any chance of pipe damage. A bottom swing-out bar with latch allows for simple pipe enclosure. Compact and lightweight at 175 pounds, the PES8BT can be lifted into position with its oversized U-bolt. The double-acting system both squeezes and releases with a hydraulic pump, so no reliance on internal springs for retraction is needed. Color-coded stops increase visibility and help operators quickly confirm that stops are set properly, and pipe centering arrows aid in alignment. 800-666-3691;
